[DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER]: RICK PARKS
Original oil portrait of Ike, with 2 smaller WWII insets, signed by artist Parks and framed in the Gallery of History style to 42x46.
Original Art signed: "Rick Parks '80". Color, 36x40. Original oil portrait of Dwight D. Eisenhower by Nevada artist Rick Parks. Two smaller images, one of "Ike" in uniform and another of the WWII General talking with soldiers, at lower margin. In 1952, Dwight David Eisenhower (1890-1969) became the fifth General elected President because of his military leadership during wartime (the others were George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Zachary Taylor and Ulysses S. Grant). "Ike", who commanded the allied forces' landing in North Africa in November 1942, was the Supreme Commander of the allied troops that invaded occupied France on D-Day, 1944. Serving as the nation's 34th President from 1953-1961, Eisenhower, like Grant, was a graduate of West Point and had held no previous elective office before becoming President. Ironically, Eisenhower and Grant were the only two Republican Presidents to serve two complete four-year terms until Ronald Reagan took office. Extremely popular, "Ike" was the first U.S. President constitutionally ineligible to run for a third term in 1960. Like Washington and Jackson, Eisenhower became an active farmer after serving his two terms as President. Slightly soiled at forehead of image, else fine condition. Fabric border is stained at lower right corner. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 42½x46.
